If you are a regular reader of Shutterbug Magazine and receive their emails you already know they have teamed up with DxO Optics to give away FREE copies of the image processing software, DxO OpticsPro8.
If you didn’t know, don’t worry I’ve got all the information right here.
DxO is currently selling version 10, and this is version 8, but FREE is great way to try out software.
According to the people at DxO you can:
“instantly correct all the optical defects of your equipment, remove digital noise
even at high sensitivities, recover fine details and textures in dark or burnt areas,
and bring out all the nuances of color in your images.
With DxO OpticsPro’s outstanding performance, bring out the best in your RAW
and JPEG photos in just a few clicks, regardless of shooting conditions.”
I downloaded their “gift” and it installed quite easily. I then selected a folder of Infrared images I recently made with my Super Color converted Canon SL1. The software read the meta data and downloaded the adjustment information for the camera and the 2 lenses I had used. – Okay, that was impressive.
I then proceeded to go thru the software and it is not difficult use.
I am a Photoshop user, but I will use this occasionally. I may even decide to buy their newer version, ……………..maybe.
The link to the download is here The CODE is SHUTTERBUG1214
So, there’s your gift. …………Now, what did you get me?

This Blog story was originally posted in December and the promotion may have ended. I found another link here http://www.dxo.com/intl/dphotographer that will work thru 01/31/15. Good luck.
Hi Dan, thank you for the link! I’ve heard great things about DxO and am looking forward to trying their software. As a Ps user for channel swapping, I’m always on the lookout for processes that make my life easier and help me get the image I envision.
